Chinatown’s Kuriimii’s Soft Serve is Offering Bold & Exotic Flavors and Cones!
The foodie scene here in Philly is far from lackluster. However, when compared to the likes of L.A and NYC we definitely give them a run for their money in terms of comfort and street foods. Yet overall we are still in the shadows of the larger markets. So two local Philadelphians, Chris Nguyen and Michael Ho decided to do something about it. Well in the desert department that is. Their solution is the exotic soft serve bar, Kuriimii’s Soft Serve (1023 Cherry st.).
Nestled in the middle of Cherry Street across from Bonchon, is where Philly’s soft serve revolution looks to begin. Opening Friday September 15th, Kuriimii will be serving up bold flavors such as honey dew, taro, matcha, black sesame, coffee, and charcoal vanilla. Essentially flavors that are wildly popular among the Asian community. Guests can also top their ice cream with popular toppings such as jimmies, selected cereals, and assorted candies.
With the emergence of more adventurous foodies and a local food culture that embraces exotic dishes, restaurants no longer have to cater to the palates of the western world. There was a time where chefs had to tweak native dishes to make them more “Americanized.” This is no longer the case and Kuriimii Soft Serve is a testament to this culinary renaissance.
Looking to keep pace with NYC and L.A, Michael and Chris are providing a product that is already immensely popular in those markets and simply bringing it to Philadelphia. We definitely believe Philadelphians are ready to embrace this one-of-a-kind soft serve.
So if you are looking to step out of your comfort zone and try delicious exotic soft serve ice cream, then Kuriimii should definitely be on your bucket list of places to check out.
